TKU Clubs and Societies
Tamkang University has always placed great emphasis on promoting student clubs and societies. It now has around 220 clubs covering a vast array of areas, including charity and community volunteering, cultural research, academic learning, sports and athletics, martial arts, music, and many others. Starting from the 2011-2012 academic year, all freshmen will be required to join a student society to fulfil the requirements of their academic degree.
Student Society Week
At the beginning of each academic year (first week of Sept), student societies set up stalls on each side of ‘Poster St’, Tamsui Campus, where they promote their clubs to newly arrived freshmen. The event is a perfect forum for new students to learn about and even join clubs of their choice. Some of the more popular student societies include the TKU Photo Club, the Cinema Art Society, the Rock Climbing Club, the Voluntary Service Club, and the Classic Guitar Club. These clubs will all have stalls set up for Student Society Week.
